This past weekend we celebrated M's 13th birthday. The weather has been amazingly warm: 27 degrees C some days. A new record has been set for days above 20 degrees in May. We're really experiencing the effects of climate change here.... it's usually way cooler than this!
As it was so warm, I got my ankles out:
APC sandals, Frame jeans (no holes or rips, GSL!), Mansur Gavriel bag.
We had a big birthday lunch for M at my parents' place:
My mother made a raspberry cheesecake. It was utterly delicious.
Here's M blowing out the candles:
M reports that 13 feels no different from 12, but she's glad it's over and she's now officially a teenager (so has an excuse to be stroppy!)
In other earth-shattering news, I've decided against the stripey Max Mara skirt from last week's post. I've spurned it in favour of two other (much cheaper) skirts.
Sneak preview of one below:
It was very cheap - from Top Shop no less!
I haven't bought anything from TopShop since I was in my 20s!
I'll take some more pics of it and the other new one later in the week.
I'm usually much more likely to buy one good quality item over multiple cheaper ones, but this week I've surprised myself by doing the opposite.
Do you prefer quality over quantity?
Finally, where is xoxo? her blog is gone - I really hope she's ok. If anyone has any intel, I'd love to know.
